Summary: As the prevalence of high deductibles and self-pay accounts increases, healthcare providers are evaluating new ways to work with consumers and ensure optimal recovery of patient pay. As a best practice, some healthcare organizations use a HFMA Peer Reviewed ROI Value Model to uncover patient pay improvement opportunity, in conjunction with an optimized revenue cycle workflow. In this session, learn how patient pay and consumerism are affecting healthcare organizations, and how they’re benefiting by creating a financially oriented consumer-centric care model.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify and adapt to market trends that are causing patients to assume greater financial burden for their care (i.e., patient pay).
  • Recommend and execute tactics that appeal to consumers/patients by making care affordable.
  • Give solution criteria, best practices and lessons learned to develop and execute a patient pay strategy.
